How much is service and what does it include?
There are two service levels that residents can choose from:

Full service ($16.20 per month), includes the weekly collection of trash and recycling as well as one large item per month, picked up on the first collection day of each month. All households at this service level will be provided with a 65-gallon recycling cart. Rumpke trash carts can be leased for an additional $2.50 per month.

Limited service ($12.95 per month), includes the weekly collection of one 95-gallon trash cart and one 65-gallon recycling cart as well as one large item per month, picked up on the first collection day of each month. At this service level, only material placed at the curb completely contained inside the carts will be collected.

The new contract with the three townships is for 5 years and monthly rates will increase annually by an average of $0.25- $0.35.
